About the Painting

Joshua Tree National Park is most beautiful just before dawn, when the rounded granite boulders turn shades of lavender and pastel coral, getting ready to turn to fiery orange at the first ray of dawn. This painting captures that fleeting moment in time, just at the cusp of dawn.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It can be hung framed or unframed.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
